Area is the number of square units that
are needed to cover the surface of a figure.
height
(h)
base (b)
How many squares cover this rectangle?
The area of this rectangle is
12 squares or 12 units squared.

2 units x 6 units = 12 units .

Area is in units because you are
multiplying units.

We found the area of the rectangle by
multiplying the base times the height.

The area of a rectangle is also
known as the length times the width.
A = bh
is the same as A = lw

of base and height.
height = s
A= s
